Review: Treasured by a Tiger - Felicity Heaton
Lyra has been a fool, falling for the charms of a male whose only desire was to make a fast buck by selling her. Shackled and collared, her strength muted by magic, she awaits her time on the stage at a black-market auction, but before it can come, all hell breaks loose and she seizes a chance to escape - and runs straight into a majestic warrior who steals her breath away and tempts her like no other as he battles alone to free everyone.
When Lyra offers her services as a translator to repay Grey for saving her, will he be strong enough to resist the needs she awakens in him and spare himself the pain of her inevitable rejection when she discovers the truth about him? And when the powerful male in charge of the slave ring starts a bloody hunt for Lyra, can she escape another collar and find the courage to trust the tiger who is capturing her heart?

I've been looking forward to Grey's story since we first met him in Turned by a Tiger, he's Talon's twin brother but has always been looked down on by their pride (outside of his immediate family) because he is a rare white tiger and doesn't look like any of the others. You'd think that would make him unique and special but apart from his siblings Grey has always been looked down on by the others and made to feel lesser than them. Grey focused all of his energy on protecting his sister Maya but now that she is happily mated and has moved away he is a bit lost and feeling very out of place. He didn't want to stay with the pride but he didn't really have anywhere else to go so he decides to do some digging into Archangel and try to figure out what they were up when they captured Talon.
Grey's investigations have taken him deep into Hell and when he comes across a group of slavers his protective instincts roar to life and he fights to free the captives, including a beautiful hellcat called Lyra. Lyra has already had her heart broken once when the man she trusted sold her into slavery so she doesn't trust her instincts when it comes to men. She has a debt to pay for her freedom though so she offers to translate for Grey while he continues his investigation into Archangel. The pair quickly realise that they are fated mates but both of them have their own reasons to be wary and not to act on the bond. Lyra finds it hard to trust and Grey is convinced that when she sees his "deformity" she'll turn her back on him so believes it's safer to not get involved in the first place.
The attraction is definitely there even though they're both reluctant to act on it so this was definitely a slower paced romance where they spent time getting to know each other before admitting their growing feelings. I really enjoyed the pace of their romance, this series is all about fated mates so the couples know very quickly upon meeting that they are meant to be together, but Felicity Heaton has a knack of drawing that out and making them work for their happily ever afters. I always know I'm going to get a sweet but hot romance when I pick up one of her books and that's the reason I enjoy them so much.
When it comes to the ongoing story arc we're starting to get some really interesting information about Archangel now and I think things are starting to come together ready for a big showdown. It's going to be really interesting to see who gets their story next (I'm hoping for a certain dragon!) and I'm definitely looking forward to the downfall of Archangel after all the harm they've caused the supernatural community.
